They've run rampant, roughshod, and right on through every physical event imaginable to create a terrible path of illegitimacy and paranoia within the annals of history. Football, baseball, and cycling are just a couple of sports to be hit by steroid controversy
Professional wrestling has probably been hit the hardest of all these competitions with multiple allegations against its entertainers throughout the decades. From Vince McMahon's whole steroid trial during the 1990s and his alleged encouragement of the drug was presented in the minds for all to see to the steroid scandal in the late 2000s that named several wrestlers receiving performance enhancing drugs from a well-known steroid distributor, pro wrestling's mark in steroid history has been well-documented.
To Hulk Hogan, Big John Studd, Ravishing Rick Rude, and Ultimate Warrior all the way to Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio, and Randy Orton, the allure of steroid's advantages and their desire to stay on top of their profession for these athletes proved too much for them. It was a decision that set these athletes down a dark path, some paths leading to the most gruesome of ends.
But then there are the professional wrestlers that have stood in front of that devilish test and passed. They stared straight into the eye of that harlot known as steroids and looked the other way, opting for more natural and harder avenues to attain their physiques and stay on top of their game. Their example of non-usage warrants them to be included on this list and to be commended for their commitment into non-doping. As a final note, wrestlers that were incredibly huge to begin with like Kane, Big Show, and Andre the Giant will be left off this list. Wrestlers that huge are more likely than not, just because they were gigantic and strong by default.

2 Brock Lesnar
1 John Cena
The 15 time WWE Champion rounds out this list by being the number one entrant. Former bodybuilder turned pro wrestler as many of you know, John Cena has always been a really jacked guy. Along with being a jacked guy comes the accusations of being on steroids. The Cenation Leader has sadly always been mired in steroid allegations, with people claiming that Cena has told them point blank that he's taken steroids. that he hasn't taken steroids, that he's actually a robot programmed by Vince McMahon. Ok, maybe not that last one, but he is buried deep in allegations, whether it be through actual "legitimacy" or "jealousy."
The only piece of evidence that we have of Cena's mouth opening with sounds coming out in regards to his alleged steroid usage was on Chris Jericho's podcast over the WWE Network. Jericho flat out asked Cena: "Have you used steroids?" As you may have predicted, Cena responded with a resounding "no." His reasoning being that he has always weighed around 250 pounds and has never deviated that far away from it. Cena, being the face of the franchise, his work with Make-a-Wish Foundation, and his reasoning stated above regarding his steroid usage legitimizes himself as not being a steroid user. He would have too much lose and it would ruin every good thing he has done in the name of the company.
